My Healthyland Blueberry Smoothie 

My wedding is coming up in under 3 months. I decided to meal prep and plan my weekly meals again. Since becoming a mum I LOVE my outings to Cafes with grandparents, aunties, uncles, friends etc, but I am a huge fan of home cooking. 

There are so many cafes around that serve healthy, nutritious foods, but I want to go back to having my 4-5 good healthy meals a day. Not just breakie, cafe healthy lunch and dinner. Or coffee and forget to eat. My training is doing well, but I miss my passion creating food recipes for you all and myself. 

So watch this space, the next week I will be sharing my healthy meal prep with you all and sharing some clean recipes on my blog.

This is my afternoon tea today. It’s a blueberry, greens smoothie.  I am time poor as I’m trying to sort out work and spend time with my little man!

Baby Hulk Pancakes

Today I created a little pancake recipe for Cruz.  I named them “BABY HULK PANCAKES”. He loved them. They are soft and swishy in texture. Easy for him to digest too.

 

Recipe:

30g organic oats.
1/2 a banana.
1 handful of baby spinach leaves.
2 egg whites.
10mls of water.

Blend for 30 seconds. I used a Omniblender

Then pour in fry pan to cook 8-10 small pancakes.

This does 2-3 days worth.

You can freeze too.
Enjoy bubbas.
If mummas want this too just eat the whole serving in the recipe.

Raw Chocolate Dip. 


I decided I wanted to make a delicious dip to go with fruit. So off I went to look in Priceline at there superfood section. I wanted something that could nourish my body but still taste delicious.

I purchased a Natures Way organic cacao, as I fancied something chocolatey (is that a word?).

They had other great products like Maca, super greens but I wanted to create a dessert.


I had Cruz’s approval too haha…

Cacao is high in magnesium, calcium, zinc and lots of the Vitamin B groups.


Recipe for the cacao dip. 

3 tbsp coconut oil

2 tbsp 100% peanut butter

1 tsp Manuka honey


Melt!


Then mix in 3 tbsp of @natureswayoz organic cacao and 1/2 tsp cinnamon.

Serve Instantly with chopped fruit. I used strawberries and banana 🍓🍌🍫.


Perfect for a morning tea, dessert or a party.
Enjoy responsibly ☺️
Cacao is also available online too here – NATURES WAY CACAO-PRICELINE

Breastfeeding in my active wear. 

It can be very tricky to find a nursing bra that can deliver on all fronts.

I was looking for comfort, support and something that still fit when my boobs were forever changing shape due to feeds. I was after something that did all the above plus I could workout in it too.

I remember my first high, interval, intensity workout. All I can say is ouch. I wore my usual pre pregnancy crops (mind you I only used to have small size A mozzie bites ha) to hold up my new big full boobies. They bounced every where. My nipples hurt and they had no support at all. When I was doing sprints, I almost cried because they hurt so much. Trying to feed a hungry baby after my workout was a night mare too. I had to try and pull down straps and they would pull right round my neck. I needed a good active nursing bra.

I came across Rob, from Yummy Mummy Lingerie on her Instagram page @yummy_mummy_lingerie. It was so refreshing to get the answers I needed promptly to my comments I made on her page. Before I knew it was getting sized up for a nursing, sports bra. Yes I was doing this all over the Internet too. This was perfect for me too as I had a new born baby, I didn’t have lots of spare time to be off trying of nursing, sports bras either.

A few days later I received the parcel with the @Cadenshae nursing bra. I tried it on and was a great fit. I even felt like I got a pair of new boobies from the shop too. They made my boobs look great.

The bra contained little clasps to undo to make feeding access, quick and easy to do. I was able to top Cruz up quickly at the gym too, pre workout.


It ticked all the right boxes, plus more. I loved the colours they came in too. Perfect to match up with my colourful activewear wardrobe too.


Yummy Mummy Lingerie specialise in maternity and post pregnancy, so they have a wide range of products and advice to suit your everyday nursing needs.

Being a active mum, I spend a lot of time in my active wear. From being comfortable at home, shopping, walking and training at Hiit I wanted something that would accomodate all mine and my babies needs. Something I could use everyday.

Here are some of the nursing/activewear bras that Yummy Mummy have to offer for training.

– Everyday Nursing Bra for general wear.

– Fit2feed Activewear Bra for medium to low impact activity.

– Ultimate Nursing Sports Bra for high impact exercise and larger busted mama’s.


  

I have washed these bras several times too and each time come up as good as knew. They have kept their shape and colour. This is something that is truly important to me when purchasing a bra. I cannot stand when the material that covers the breast goes lumpy. I believe these bras were built to last.

I hope you enjoyed my product review on the Cadenshae nursing, sport bras. They are seriously amazing. I highly reccomend them. If you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask myself or Rob from Yummy Mummy Lingerie. Happy to help out.

Have a great Wednesday Peeps!!

Big Love,

Mums + Bubs Date.

Today Cruz and I went on a picnic with other new mummies and their little bubs.

I always love catch ups with other mummas, as you can relate to them. I always leave the play dates feeling confident about motherhood and you know you are not alone. We are in this together. I love watching our babies grow together as well! Every week they are ticking off little milestones. Such clever babies. It’s a little heart breaking seeing some of them teething.

We had a healthy morning tea, chatted and took our babes for a swim.

Thank you for the photos Lauren from Hunter and Rose Lifestyle so lucky we have you to snap these happy memories.
